In response to Lodawick, Ludwick, or the many other spellings...I am a descended through his son, James Benjamin Harrison, then son William Andrew Harrison. Lodawick is my 5th Great Grandfather. I have two different obits for him, and can take him back to 1830 in Williamson County, Tennessee. From the information that I have found, he had 16 children and I mostly sure I can account for 15 of them. Information on Lodawick himself is sketchy to say the least. I don't believe he knew how old he actually was. Census records show a different birthdate just about every time I come across one. The two obits I have both state he was 94-95 yet his headstone reads 92 years.
William Andrew Harrison was born 6 Nov 1857 and d. 15 Feb 1922 in Fillmore, Montgomery County, Illinois. He married Sintha (also spelled Cynthia) Donaldson in 1878 in Montgomery County, Illinois. He is my ggg Grandfather.
I would Love to share any other information. I am fairly new to this and would really like to see if anyone else has any information I haven't come across yet. Thank you! Amber Harrison-Heistand
